Apocalypse not?

Of course, the diehard believers in the approaching end won’t be swayed from their beliefs no matter what (and to that end the comments on stories like this are often more fun than the stories themselves), but the Washington Post recently published a report on new excavations of Mayan artwork and murals to reassure us that the Mayans could envision a future beyond the ‘end of time’ figured on many of their calendars.

The new discovery gives us more information than ever about the incredible effort the Mayans put into observing their environment and seeking to understand how it worked.  I’ll be looking forward to further discoveries as they continue to excavate these ruins.

I’m still counting down to my apocalypse party, though – 220 days to 12/21!
